Gorgonzola

Pronounce it: gaw-gon-zole-ah

A blue-veined cheese originating from a small town near Milan in Italy and now made by more than 80 producers. Gorgonzola is made from whole unpasteurised cows milk and injected with a sharp, spicy greenish-blue mould which is a delicious contrast to the creamy cheese.

Store it

Well wrapped in waxed paper in the fridge.

Cook it

As a dessert cheese, folded into risotto at the last minute, on freshly cooked pasta, in dressings and salads or served alongside polenta.

Alternatives

Try dolcelatte, Stilton or Danish blue.
